"Fangs" review

Fangs (2001)

Directed by Kelly Sandefur
Writing credits Jim Geoghan

Corbin Bernsen.... Carl Hart
Tracy Nelson.... Ally Parks
Whip Hubley.... Dr. John Winslow
Katie Stuart.... Genny Winslow

Bats attack a housing community. Corbin Bernsen is the no nonsense developer who doesn't want to hear about any bat problems. So he pretends they don't exist. Too bad for him they do exist. Many fake looking bats attack.

"Fangs" is a typical example of what happens when you try to make the dreaded horror/comedy. Rarely does this mix of genres succeed. The horror gets diluted and the comedy is usually not funny. It's a lose/lose situation. "Fangs" had a lot of fake bats but bat attacks do not equal laughter. There was no joy watching "Fangs". Nor was I scared. It was lame.

If you want a good laugh, click on the writer's name on the link above, (Jim Geoghan). Something tells me the picture posted there is not the writer of this movie. Now that was funny. If it is him, he might want to use the cash from "Fangs" to get a haircut and a shower.

SCORE: 1 out of 4 fake bats
